Fun. Cover Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’

Fueled By Ramen

Days after the passing of Beastie Boys‘ Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch, the music world (and beyond) is still reeling. The loss has inspired many musicians to cover songs by the rap trio, and now fun. has honored the late MC with a unique rendition of ‘Sabotage.’

During their recent date at Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club, the New York band, led by Nate Ruess, launched into a high energy nod to MCA. Although it was short, and only featured one spotty verse from the ‘Ill Communication’ track, the sentiment was still there — Yauch will be missed.

The 47-year-old star made music with the Beastie Boys for over three decades, and was also known for his humanitarian and film work. The trailblazer is being mourned around the world, especially in his hometown of  New York where fun. is also based.

The ‘We Are Young’ band isn’t the only artist to pay tribute to the founding Beastie Boys member. Kid Rock, Travie McCoy and the Roots honored the B-Boys at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Coldplay treated fans to a heartfelt version of ‘Fight for Your Right’ at their L.A. show at the Hollywood Bowl last Friday, the day that Yauch died.

Fun. will play select dates around the country before heading to Chicago to perform at this year’s Lollapalooza festival.
